In the realm of snacking, it’s universally known that some dips require a sturdier scooping device. Enter the pita chip. These crunchy, thick chips can stand up to any dip, from hummus to hot crab to roasted eggplant, without buckling.
Special equipment: You’ll need a pastry brush to make these chips.
What to buy: Ras el hanout is a North African spice blend with sweet and floral notes and can be found at Middle Eastern grocers. Or you can make your own.
Game plan: These pita chips can be seasoned with just about any spice blend or dried herb like thyme, herbes de Provence, or even Old Bay. For a sweet twist, use 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon and swap out the salt for some granulated sugar instead.
